in the Arctic
We want everyone to enjoy being part of our Team here at Canterbury Travel, but we understand it is not for everyone. We are looking for people who have had experience of working in demanding roles, experience of working outdoors and being customer facing.
The roles we offer are exciting and are a lot of fun for those who thrive in fast paced and customer facing situations. If this isn’t you there may be a less customer facing role more suited to your abilities, so be sure to check them all out!
What to expect
The roles we offer within Canterbury Travel are very bespoke but come hand in hand with an unforgettable experience. Our season is based in the Arctic which of course comes with amazing views, heaps of snow and the opportunity to see the Aurora Borealis.
However, we want everyone to be prepared that it is not the easiest of places to work, with Sub-zero temperatures, Polar nights and a limited social life, but when combatted appropriately these can be no issue at all - warm clothes for the cold days, vitamins for the lack of light and a social life created within the team.
You will have the chance to ask any questions you may have within the application process, and we will give you any more information you may need if you are successful.
I'd like to apply.You can view our available vacancies by clicking "Vacancies" at the top of the page and then filling in our application form.
Is there Wi-Fi provided around the resort?You will be provided with Wi-Fi in each accommodation. However, as we are in the Arctic the signal doesn’t tend to be very strong. You will have to opportunity to purchase your own Wi-Fi box once you get to resort if you’d prefer.

What are the dates for the season?It varies depending on the resort but our longest contract is from the 17th of November to the 4th of January.
What activities do you provide for the guests, and do we get to be part of this?We provide a range of different activities for our guests whilst they are on our tours including Husky mushing, Reindeer rides, Snowmobiles, Tobogganing and more!
